Hi James
I set the points to 0.012″ and have them just fully open at TDC. That’s good enough to get the engine running. Then with the distributor clamp just tight enough to prevent the distributor housing from rotating on it’s own, I take the bike for a run and reach down and rotate the distributor to a position where the engine feels really responsive and pulls well at all speeds. I then stop and tighten up the clamp.
It works for me!
